I splurged on a Chairman’s Selection wine, and by “splurg” I mean I spent more than $15 ($15.99 to be exact). This was light and fragrant, and paired so nicely with my Baked Almond-Dijon Halibut with Roasted Golden Beets! This is also my first French wine post, which is crazy because the French make some of my favorite wines! Plus I LOVE the mustache man on the label, so fun! So here it is…this white wine is made exclusively from the Chardonnay grape variety. To break down location (France can be tricky): Country – France; Region – Burgundy (Bourgogne); Subregion - Mâconnais; Appellation - Pouilly-Fuissé. Simple, right?
Appearance: Clear, pale lemon-green
Nose: Clean, medium intensity – fruit (peach, apricot), floral, and nutty (almond) scents
Palate: Dry – medium acidity – full body – leafy flavors mixed with fruits like peach, apricot, and grapefruit
